Michelle Dockery's dramatic beauty makeover - Lady Mary would be astounded

The stunning actress has a serious makeover...

Michelle Dockery is one of our favourite actresses and we love her portrayal of Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey. The stunning star is back with the show's newest film Downton Abbey: A New Era, and on Sunday evening, the 40-year-old took to the red carpet for the premiere in New York City.

The star looked phenomenal in her sparkly silver dress by Givenchy. The backless style fitted her like a glove. But did you see her beauty look?

Michelle tends to go for the more natural vibe with her makeup and hair; reminiscent of her on-screen character. She sports flawless, pale skin and minimal eye makeup, as well as lightly curled hair.

"For Michelle’s US premiere of the Downtown Abbey film,  Ben Skirvin did a simple and sleek super shiny look with the hair so we wanted to create a little bit of strength with the deep blue eye that complemented Michelle’s gorgeous brown eyes, we kept the skin glowy and clean with a little contour and a Dewey nude lip."

Joanne Froggatt looked stunning in Michael Kors
